If you have the guts, the experience, and the money, you can bid farewell to the consulting firm where you are currently working at right now and start your very own company. This is the best way to boost your monthly earnings and possibly, the only way to get closer to your financial freedom.
Here’s how you can start a consulting company:
1. Decide the type of consulting company that you would like to set up. Right now, there are two basic types of consulting companies; online and offline. Both types have their own advantages and disadvantages. Get to know all the pros and cons and weigh them. Personally, I recommend that you do business online. It’s very cost-effective and it’s very lucrative as you’ll be able to tap the global market.
2. Permits and certifications. Do your research or ask around to determine what kinds of permits or certifications you need from the local government to get started. As this process might take a lot of time, I recommend that you prioritize this task.
3. Tools and equipments. If you are going to operate online, make sure that you have at least 2 computers that are in excellent condition and a reliable high speed internet connection. These are the only things that you are going to need to get started.
4. Create your own website. Mark your online presence by creating your very own website. Get .com extension as it communicates professionalism. Talk about the service that you provide on your site and give your prospects an easy way to get in touch with you.
